Local Reviews

3 grocery stores, 2 gas stations and several restaurants within walking distance, Also thank you for driving the bus today!

I like that we are close to. Places to eat and hang out with friends, also that theres a busline straight to the mall. I also like that we can be as liud ad we want with no complaint.

I love that we live by doctors, dentist, and stores. So that even if you don't have a car you can walk to wherever you need to go. And I love that my neighborhood is full of a bunch of friendly people.

We are close to grocery shopping area. There are several family-friendly restaurants nearby. It is a safe place to walk here.

This area has good restaurants like dem 2 brothers, salis and a lot of other food chains. Stores are in walking distance. Area is ok for walking during day time. My family enjoyes the many many places to eat

Nothing special other than knowing most of the neighbors, and there is nothing within walking distance to do, you must drive somewhere.
